Drug and alcohol detoxification is one of the first steps in Narconon Fresh Start’s treatment program and must be completed by all those going through the recovery process. The goal of detoxification is to rid the body of toxins accumulated by alcohol and drug use. These days, there are few people who use one drug exclusively. For example, it is very common to see individuals in detox that use alcohol and cocaine, or alcohol and prescription medications.
Narconon Fresh Start’s detoxification program covers all aspects of the individual’s withdrawal and purification from drugs. The removal of drug residuals is the key goal in drug and alcohol detox. Without this process, drug residues can remain in one’s body and cause cravings for years after drug use has ceased. A vital step in a successful drug detox and recovery program is flushing out these accumulated toxic residues so that the individual no longer experiences unwanted adverse effects from the substances they have been abusing.
Narconon Fresh Start uses the New Life Detoxification Program to help their program participants experience complete body cleansing and purification. This process includes expert medical and clinical staff, a safe and supportive environment, and a solid introduction in to the principles of recovery. The very first step of detoxification is withdrawal. Drug and alcohol withdrawal is “the act or process of ceasing to use an addictive substance.” Once an individual has discontinued using drugs and alcohol, physical and behavioral withdrawal symptoms may follow. The character and severity of the withdrawal symptoms vary greatly depending on the particular drug and amount administered daily. The New Life Detoxification Program is a process that helps diminish the uncomfortable symptoms that come during recovery (cravings, overwhelming urges to use, depression, emotional instability).
Drug and alcohol detox is performed in many different ways depending on where you decide to receive treatment. Most drug detox centers simply provide treatment to avoid physical withdrawal to alcohol & other drugs. We provide the individual with counseling during detox to help with the physical withdrawal and the psychological root cause of the individual’s addiction problem. This helps to decrease the chances of relapse. We understand the importance of working closely with medical professionals and maintaining high standards of quality treatment during the highly physical process of drug detoxification. Our client’s comfort and safety have always been, and will continue to be, our top priority during their time at Narconon Fresh Start.
